Fairy Fun Friday Challenge 32 Photo Inspiration

This week at Fairy Fun Fridays we are using a photo for inspiration. I pulled the over all color theme of browns with a few bits of green. I paper pieced their clothes and colored images with copics and prismacolor pencils. Inked image and flower with distress inks.

Here is the image:

I just love this image called Helping Hand available right here! . I flipped the image just for kicks!

I hope you can stop by the DT blogs and take a look at their creations.. they have really outdone themselves this week. You can find them listed in my side bar.

One of my favourite image Carla, the paper piecing is great and so is the skin tones. Love that distressed flower too. Hope you have a lovely weekend.
